I’ve noticed alot recently, that being in waiting I look at ALOT of engagement rings… And I used to know EXACTLY what I wanted, a cushion cut around 1ct halo with diamonds on the band… like:
With the first guy I was engaged to, I sent him a 9 page “manual” if you will of what I liked and didn’t like, and I gave him a few options but made it clear that I liked this style… Well, he went a different way, it was beautiful ring just really wasn’t what I had in mind…
Since it the center stone was set so high there was a big gap between the center stone and the side stones that you would see if you didn’t look at the center stone head on and it drove me nuts… But regardless, that engagement ended… And I’m very happily in a new one, but I notice that more simple rings reminicent of my first one are really starting to catch my eye…. Like,
Don’t get me wrong I would DIE if I got my “dream ring”… But I’m really starting to love alot of simpler rings, and I’m kind of excited to see what Jason ends up getting me… eventually. haha
Have any of you (in waiting or not) noticed your style preference change?? And feel free to post pics 🙂

When I was in a previous relationship, I had a definite idea of what I wanted. But that totally changed between that almsost engagement and my engagement now. I think your taste changes as you get older, and as new styles come out.
This is sort of like what I originally wanted.
Something like this is what I ended up with.
I’m waaaaaay happier with my ring!

I don’t know that my taste in rings has changed, but I ended up with a ring that was NOT what I thought I would like at all.
Here are the rings I had pictured for myself:
And here’s what I ended up with (pic does not do this justice AT ALL)
But I LOVE my ring! When I put it on, it was so perfect for me! I really did not like princess cut, but this one is so beautiful on my finger. I also love the peek-a-boo diamond on the side, it’s like it’s smiling at me all day when I type on my computer at work!

A few years ago (when I was with my ex), I was convinced that I was going to want a three stone ring. Then I actually saw one on someone’s hand instead of online and I realized that it’s not for me. When my Fiance and I started looking, I ended up liking solitaires, now I am in possession of a solitaire with a diamond covered band and I wouldn’t have it any other way. This ring is perfectly “me” and I love it.

I used to want this
But now I told my future Fiance I want this

Totally! Almost makes me worry that what I *love* right now, I won’t in a few years, since what I wanted 6 months ago is different from what I want now! The first and only time I went ring shopping with my future Maid/Matron of Honor last fall, I fell in love with Verragio rings like this one (although in rose gold):
But after a while, I realized I did not like how the underside wasn’t smooth. Those scrolly things on the inlay would drive my overly-tactile self nuts, I’m sure. And then I found this:
Ahh… I obsessively looked at this picture on Pricescope, daily. But in doing so, I came across these:
Which I am all obsessed with, too. But I’m glad I have several different styles that I like, so that my guy can choose from them and it can still be “his” choice and it will be a surprise, rather than me just pointing to something and say, “I want this!” I still want to have a say in it, but I think giving options evens things out a little more.

Yes, I totally have changed. And I’m not engaged yet. When by Boyfriend or Best Friend and I first started talking about getting engaged about a year ago I just KNEW this was the ring I absolutely had to have!
But now, after looking obsessively at rings for a year or so, I am currently in love with a NEW sparkler.
These are my favorites of the moment, and I never ever thought I would like princess cut. Also, I’ve recently started considering non-diamond e-rings. So unstable, my decisions, haha.
